Faster rail

Delivering fast, reliable and frequent services to connect cities and regions.

Faster rail

Faster, more reliable and more frequent services on regional rail lines can be achieved quickly with upgrades to the existing network. Simple improvements can deliver big gains for travellers, with faster rail typically delivering speeds from 160-200km/hr.

Fast rail

The development of fast rail lines over the next five to 10 years will make rail travel times competitive with road, giving travellers a genuine alternative for their commute to the city and positioning regional centres as viable alternatives to live and work. Fast rail lines can achieve speeds of 200-250km/hr.

High speed rail

While high speed rail is a longer term ambition in Australia, we need to preserve rail corridors now to keep project costs down in the future. Ultimately, high speed rail connections could achieve speeds greater than 250km/hr.
